Refers to two-dimensional works of art, usually on a paper support, to which pigment suspended in water is applied with a brush to create an image or design. Includes paintings using gouache, which is not technically watercolor paint. Watercolors are variously classified as drawings or paintings in collections.
Creative works, usually two-dimensional, depicting an outdoor scene dominated by the land, hills, fields, sky, trees, fields, rivers or other bodies of water, and other natural elements. Landscapes may include a near point of view in the foreground, but also usually depict a view into the distance. Landscapes may contain architecture or figures, but the primary focus remains the land. When an ocean, sea, or other large body of water dominates the picture, use "seascapes." For actual areas of land rather than depictions, use "landscapes (environments)."
Refers to the movement of the late 19th and early 20th centuries practiced by British and American artists such as George Inness, James McNeill Whistler, and Dwight Tryon. The movement defined a painting style similar to Impressionism, based on soft, diffused light, muted tones, and vague, nebulous outlines of objects; the movement diverged from Impressionism and expressed Symbolist tendencies in its use of neutral palettes, expressions of contemplative nature, and in its subjective style centered on establishing an atmosphere or mood.
watercolor painting
The technique of painting with pigments in a water-soluble binder and thinned with water, usually on paper. Includes gouache painting, although gouache is not technically watercolor paint.
